According to Mr. Adams, CBS is also more than halfway through a three-year spruce-up of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

filmlover, was worried about the extras on the R&H  Blu Ray collection.  Glad most are there.  Its odd that the 1962 STATE FAIR is not included.  Its not a very good film but they should have included it.  I held onto my DVD copy of STATE FAIR. 

 

Re TWILIGHT TIME, just too expensive for me and those Columbia films are of no interest to me on Blu Ray.  If they did SODOM AND GOMORRAH or APRIL LOVE would be interested but at this point it seems unlikely and I have no interest in a pan and scan version.

filmlover, for some reason the site bleeped the first word of that biblical film released by FOX that I talked about.  Do they think its a nasty word?  Its the title of a movie.  Very strange.

 

There are some words that or parts of word that are of a sexualnature that get instantly bleeped by the computer.  The five letter word you are talking about has a longer word that is probably the reason for the bleeping.

Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!

Pedro Almodóvar's colorful and controversial tribute to the pleasures and perils of Stockholm syndrome, Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down! is a rambunctious dark comedy starring Antonio Banderas as an unbalanced but alluring former mental patient and Victoria Abril as the B-movie and porn star he takes prisoner in the hopes of convincing her to marry him. A highly unconventional romance that came on the spike heels of Almodóvar's international sensation Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, this is a splashy, sexy central work in the career of one of the world's most beloved and provocative auteurs, radiantly shot by the director's great cinematographer José Luis Alcaine.

Vengeance Is Mine

A thief, a murderer, and a charming lady-killer, Iwao Enokizu (Ken Ogata) is on the run from the police. Director Shohei Imamura turns this fact-based story—about the seventy-eight-day killing spree of a remorseless man from a devoutly Catholic family—into a cold, perverse, and at times diabolically funny examination of the primitive coexisting with the modern. More than just a true-crime tale, Vengeance Is Mine bares humanity's snarling id.

Special Features:
  • New, restored high-definition digital transfer, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack

Normally, I don't list TV series of the last few decades...but this is one announcement I had to mention.

 

On July 29, CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Media Distribution will release the ultimate Blu-ray collection of the cult phenomenon from acclaimed director David Lynch and writer/producer Mark Frost: Twin Peaks: The Entire Mystery. This collection also features nearly 90 minutes of deleted/alternate scenes from Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, directed by David Lynch.

Arriving for the first time on stunning High Definition Blu-ray with English 7.1 DTS-HD Master Audio on July 29th, this comprehensive collection contains every episode from the complete television series; both the U.S. and international versions of the series' Pilot; the North American Blu-ray debut of Lynch's follow-up feature Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me; and nearly 90 minutes of deleted and alternate scenes from the film. The set also features newly transferred Log Lady introductions for each episode; picture upgrades to many shots in the TV series; a new featurette with Lynch and the actors who portrayed the Palmer family which includes a mesmerizing return to the lives of their characters today; and hours of never-before-released material that dives into the fascinating story behind the celebrated pop culture classic.

5569_tn.jpg

Along with a newly transferred version of Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, created from a 4K scan of the original negative, TWIN PEAKS – THE ENTIRE MYSTERY Blu-ray box set boasts the long-awaited missing pieces from the original version of the film – nearly an hour-and-a-half of deleted/alternate scenes from Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me – often referred to as the "holy grail" of Twin Peaks fandom. This feature-length experience has been directed and edited by Lynch exclusively for this release. Capping off more than 30 deleted/alternate scenes is an epilogue providing a fascinating glimpse beyond the cliffhanger finale of the TV series.

Additionally, the set features a massive collection of pre-existing special features, some of which have been re-mastered in high definition exclusively for this release, including the award-winning four-part documentary "Secrets From Another Place: Creating Twin Peaks," and a newly extended version of the Gold Box featurette "A Slice of Lynch," featuring the complete and uncut conversation between David Lynch and actors Kyle MacLachlan and Mädchen Amick. Additionally, this 10-disc set houses an extraordinary archive of special features culled from the entire history of Twin Peaks on home video, including featurettes, cast and crew interviews, promotional reels, archival deleted scenes...and much, much more.
